Micanopy Fall Festival

Hi, my paw friends; it′s me again Road Dog, Baron. Just want to tell you about my latest adventurist journey. My human companions and I went to a fall festival located in Micanopy, Florida and it couldn’t have been a better day the weather was just doggone perfect.

 

Micanopy is the oldest inland settlement in Florida. My grandma tells me it is like stepping back into time in this town. It has many gift shops, restaurants, a little cute white church that looked like something from right out of Little House on the Prairie, and an old book store and there is even a haunted bed and breakfast. They call it Herlong Mansion.

As you can see most of the time, I rode in the Baron Doggie Mobile due to the fact that there was a large crowd there and I had to be sure that my ever-so-wonderful paws stayed intact.  We paraded through the streets and on both sides of us there were humans that had booths set up of numerous styles.

 I mean to tell you there was everything from kettle corn, honey, art work, hand crafted gifts, handmade jewelry,  a lot of them were local artist, and many different cultures of food. My partners favorite Bayou Billy’s Louisiana style Cajun food stood out.

The most important thing is that they had booths for me and my kind. (That’s two paws up for me)  In these booths they had things that are needed for our traveling purposes such as cooling do-rags for our heads, designer collars, stylish harnesses, clutch bags to carry our belongings in, clothes that would fit four legged critters instead of two, and don’t forget our good-boy treats.

Speaking of treats, there was this little gal. She was a miniature poodle and boy what a doll she was. Her name was Tippy. Her humans had a honey booth; my companions bought a jar of wild fire non-processed honey, the real stuff. I was very pleased to have met Tippy my honey girl.

We then journeyed off to where we saw these two men that were going to bake a pizza outside, in some sort of brick oven. Imagine that.

Lots of the businesses such as the pizza guys have full time restaurants right here in town. Never saw a main street with so many fun places on it. Lots of antique stores had set up a booth with things from their stores.

There was a magic fairy at Garden Treasures. They sold all kinds of cute garden decorations. I allowed her to wave her magic wand over me. She said that it was to make me a good boy. Well, I must be a good boy because everywhere I go I have people petting me and telling me "oh what a good boy."

We came upon two fancy little dames. They were dogged out in cute little costumes.  I believe that they had a crush on me.  Well then again who wouldn’t  I’m all that and a bag of Beggin Strips.  

Anyway the music there just made me feel like dancing. If you were there it would have had you dancing also. There were a couple of different types of music being played.  It sure was a safe, clean, fun, and sunny, doggie day.

I got to meet new friends and plenty of my four-legged kind too.
